International Conference “Sacred Scripture in Ukrainian Culture: The Canonical and Extra-Canonical Writings and their Reception”
The Ukrainian Catholic University’s Faculty of Philosophy and Theology and Faculty of Humanities are pleased to announce a call for papers for the International Conference “Sacred Scripture in Ukrainian Culture: The Canonical and Extra-Canonical Writings and their Reception” to be held in Lviv, Ukraine on October 27-28, 2016
With the christianization of Kyivan Rus’, the Holy Scripture was transmitted to the Slavs through the medium of the Church Slavonic language and resulted in processes of an authentic inculturation within the Kyivan Church. This original synthesis of Christianity and Slavic folklore, served as the basis for the development of a new Christian culture reflected in the liturgical services and sacraments, sacred texts and a calendar with its cycle of feasts, modes of spiritual life and monasticism, ecclesial policy and canon law, church architecture and iconography, hymnography and sacred music.
Submissions can focus on a variety of topics including, but not limited to, the following:
- Canonical and extra-canonical biblical
- Church Slavonic translations of biblical literature
- Reception of biblical literature in Ukrainian culture
Conference sessions will be held: on 27th of October at the Faculty of Philosophy and Theology (Khutorivka St 35a, http://www.theologia.ucu.edu.ua/en/kontakty); on the 28th of October at the Faculty of Humanities (Kozelnytska St 2a,http://clio.ucu.edu.ua/en/contacts/)
